About our home

We sit squarely on the side of a mountain with national park bushland behind us, and the botanic gardens precinct in front, within the leafy, old established suburb of Edge Hill. Green trees & lush vegetation all around.

We are 4km from the CBD, on main roads & bus routes, and perfectly placed for easy access to the airport, beaches, Great Barrier Reef trips, world heritage rainforest at the Daintree River, the Tablelands, Port Douglas and ... well, everywhere really!

Our beautiful home has been renovated in several stages over the last 14 years. It has bare wooden floors, windows looking out to a gardens at every turn, modern conveniences, and speaks of the laid back tropical lifestyle we enjoy.

People come from all over Cairns to do the Red Arrow fitness walk, on our hill. It's a fabulous way to see locals out and about, and for the fitter, there's the longer Blue Arrow walk. Just below those walks is the Tanks Arts Centre - a contemporary arts centre housed in converted old, WW2 naval oil storage tanks, with an art gallery, cafe and live music program with national & international artists.

Within walking distance, too, is the Edge Hill village, with delicious cafe's & restaurant's, as well as speciality stores and health services. You couldn't be in a better part of Cairns if you tried.
